ASIST - Suicide First Aid Workshop

Perry Memorial Hospital will be hosting a two day Living Works ASIST program (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) ASIST is an award-winning two-day interactive workshop that prepares caregivers to provide life-assisting suicide first-aid intervention. Research shows that ASIST provides long-term financial benefit to communities and that ASIST-trained caregivers help at-risk people feel less suicidal and more hopeful. ASIST teaches participants to recognize when someone may be at risk of suicide and work with them to create a plan that will support their immediate safety. Although ASIST is widely used by healthcare providers, participants don’t need any formal training to attend the workshop—ASIST can be learned and used by anyone. The course will be offered at Perry Memorial in the White Oak classroom on October 6th and & 7th from 9-5 each day.
